The Year of Falling in Love - Review

The Year of Falling in Love -Sunnyvale #2
by Jessica Sorensen

What they say: Isabella Anders just found out Lynn and her dad want to send her to a reform school. But with the help of Grandma Stephy, Isa’s dad agrees to let her move in with her grandma. 

Isa is more than relieved to be moving out. And after going on an unofficial date with Kyler, she wonders if maybe her life is starting to turn around. But then she discovers the truth about what really happened to her mother.

Not ready to fully accept that her mother is a murderer, Isa turns to Kai for help. Kai is more than willing to help, but to protect Isa, he keeps some of the more brutal details about her mother’s case to himself until he can find out more.

But when a mysterious blue car starts showing up everywhere, and Isa receives a threatening text message from an unknown caller, Kai realizes someone is dead set on destroying Isa. And he might not be able to protect her.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: The Year of Falling in Love picks up right after the end of the previous book in the Sunnyvale/Isabella Anders series. Keeping this a spoiler free as possible (you will need to read The Year I Became Isabella Anders first): Isa has found out some devastating news but is about to uncover even more secrets.

A great deal happens, but Sorensen very cleverly manages to keep many details hidden, whilst posing new questions and theories. I loved Kai and am very biased towards him, so whenever Kyler appeared I found myself getting annoyed at him and I'm convinced he's somehow involved in the ongoing campaign against Isa.

Kai is a wonderful support to Isa, who is still extremely conflicted about her feelings for him and Kyle. I wanted to know more about Kai and his struggles. It was nice to see him interacting with Isa and certain other characters.

I said it in my review of the previous book, but I'm going to comment again on how horrible Lynn, Hannah and even her Dad are. Lynn takes things to another level this time around and I'm convinced she played a greater role in previous events...

I really enjoyed both instalments and am looking forward to discovering what happens next with Isa and Kai.

4 Stars in my Sky!
